[CONTRIBUTION] Ultimate SEO URLs v2.1 - by Chemo

Recommended Posts

Hello Brian @brian_cee,

 

Just checked and the above fix works still for me in the latest EDGE.

Make sure you have the Product Title header tag installed:

Admin => Modules => Header Tags => Product Title => SEO Breadcrumb Override?

and set it to "true"

PS: this is not related to Ultimate SEO URLs v2.1, please post in the correct topics.

Sorry, but if you look in Jack_mcs' signature, it says: Most Important: Header Tags SEO - Ultimate SEO V 2.2d

and when I click the link for Ultimate SEO V 2.2d, it takes me to this very thread. So I assumed versions 2.2 and 2.1 were similar enough to talk about here, since he created that link. But OK, if you say so, I'll try to find a better thread tomorrow, it's too late here for more of this tonight. But, by the way, I set everything up as you said, I could show screenshots, but not here, I guess.

the model is still used if the SEO Product Title is left blank.

That is correct, and expected.

Make your "product seo title" the same as your "product name" for each product.

Brian, One thing is Header Tags SEO: Header Tags SEO

another is: Ultimate SEO URLs: Ultimate SEO V 2.2d

and a third is your question about product title instead of model in Breadcrumb and my fix.

Are you serious? Fill in product seo title for each product one by one instead of one code change?

The advice to change core code is far from ideal.  Preferable advice would be;

- make a hook
- make a replacement module
- etc

I do not know if the asker has 1 product, or 100, or 1000. 
In any case, it takes 30 seconds to perform a database hit to update seo_title to match name.

However, this little conversation is good as I can revisit my piece of code and come up with some changes.

He still would have an additional copy paste action for each new or modified product or to run again the sql query.

With my suggested "core" change the following 3 options for products breadcrumb would be available:

1. product model like by default

2. product SEO name like in existing core

3. product name like he asked for, instead of empty. Who wants an empty entrance for product in breadcrumb?

This has been suggested some time ago (but rejected) as a core change/fix also for the misleading info text in admin products:

Products Title for SEO:
Replaces the product name in the <title> Meta Element
and optionally in the Breadcrumb Trail.
Leave blank to default to product name.

In the meantime, for those using Header Tags SEO, you can display the name of the item in the breadcrumb or make up your own. There is also an option to include the model number.

Brian @brian_cee,

Sorry, I didn't know that you are using Jack's Header Tags SEO and I neither knew that it also allows to use the products name in breadcrumb.

My breadcrumb modification in application_top.php is for shops which do not use Header Tags SEO. So please, use one thing: Jack's Heeader Tags SEO OR my modification, not both.

Your question should still be posted in another topic: Header Tags SEO

I don't currently use Header Tags SEO, but if there's an option in that to use product titles in the breadcrumb, I guess I will.

I quoted Jack's signature because I thought you were differentiating  between version of the Ultimate SEO urls, now I see that you were referring to the difference between Header Tags SEO and Ultimate SEO urls..... my fault completely, as I'm so lost I thought the breadcrumb override thing was part of the Ultimate SEO addon installation.....

Hello , @Jack_mcs
It would be nice to update the installation instructions of Ultimate SEO V 2.2d to the latest version of OsCommerce 2.3.4.1 BS Edge.

Many of the "Find this code:" do not match, and maybe the "REPLACE with this function:" should also be updated ... ??

If this contribution is so important, why not incorporate it into the version Edge "Final" of @burt ?

Best regards

Valqui

It's on my list of things to do. But this addon isn't locked so please feel free to make the changes and upload a new version. If you do that, please upload a full version since partial uploads cause confusion.

URLs for SEO have been irrelevant for a long time.

To suggest that this code goes into Edge...make me raise my eyebrow.

Anyway that addon likes many and it would be good to include it. what do you think?
